  • Fans of ATLA Will Love “The Rise of Kyoshi”

    I got into Avatar: The Last Airbender late but I absolutely loved it, and diving back into the world is a no-brainer for me. The Rise of Kyoshi, a YA novel about the origins of Avatar Kyoshi, is a wild ride from start to finish, and fans of ATLA will want to check it out. […]


  • Pride Reads Roundup

    Last month, inspired by a BookCon panel and aiming to diversify my reading list a bit, I pledged to only read books featuring LGBTQ+ protagonists.

    When I asked for recommendations to diversify my Pride Reads selections, Zenobia July was a title that came up multiple times.

    Prior to this week I wasn’t super into Taylor Swift, but the music video for “You Need To Calm Down” is dripping with queer iconography that truly seems to understand current queer community trends and pop culture references.  More importantly, it’s a call to action.

  • Pride Reads: “Carmilla” by Kim Turrisi

    What Pride Month would be complete without the original lesbian vampire story? The Carmilla book is based on the web series, which is itself based on the 1872 gothic novel of the same name. Fans of the web series can absolutely skip this book, but anyone who is relatively new the story (like me) may find […]
